Good-looking, fit and fifty-something, Judge John Deed is no ordinary High Court Judge. And neither is his uncompromising approach to justice that finds him flying in the face of convention, confronting corruption and talking on the establishment – especially pompous new Presider, Sir Monty "Legover" Everard and string-pulling civil servant Sir Ian Rochester. Deed’s other challenge is to find the root of his problem with women. A confirmed womaniser, he already finds himself in a court with his ex-wife and his sometime lover Jo Mills. Can therapy help the Judge deal with his attitude towards women?
